This glass rose out of which a razor sharp blade protrudes was hand blown in Murano.

It is the precious edition of the exhibition of the Pavilion of Austria at the 58th Venice Art Biennale, Discordo Ergo Sum (“I dissent, therefore I am”), featuring a precise grid of 312 glass roses.

Bertlmann’s work ironically subverts and redefines social phenomena and symbols.
